Yeah, I'm not sure what to make of this patch, right about March 6 I've been posting missing keyword pictures. But yesterday 1 keyword came back.
I spoke with my internet marketer friend, and he told me basically that when google releases a patch he's hit with it from page 1 to 5, and he doesn't do anything about it, and it eventually "crawls" back up to page 2 and sometimes page 1.
I read many of your stories, and having that gloom fear that google will lurk in the background deploying patches and re-indexing instead of 1 big release is extremely unstable for people who depend on page 1 to live.
I guess I can be very negative about this patch, even though I'm still learning the ropes, but what I am starting to do now is building an email list for people to subscribe to, so that even though google releases patches that can shake websites, I'll still have my mailing list and market through there.
I guess if some of your keywords are being hauled back on the top 10 pages, and the patch is still being rolled out, maybe the keywords can push higher as the patch reaches its climax.
One can only hope, goodnight!
